Comstock Heritage DC Tribal Longhorn
This buckle, made entirely from sterling silver, features a longhorn skull motif bordered by tribal patterning. The skull has a remarkable level of detail—its careful shading and wear-marks (traced and engraved by hand) create a vivid likeness of weatherworn bone. James estimates that the skull alone took eight hours to make. The tribal patterning is a natural fit to add some Americana balance to the Western-themed motif, and its look seems quite improved by the juxtaposition as well.
